    Al-Shabab (Saudi Arabia) defeated Esteghlal (Iran) 2-1 and tops Group A after 5 games with 1 game left. They are already qualified while Esteghlal are out.

    Al-Ittihad (Saudi Arabia) defeated Tractor Sazi (Iran) 2-0 in Group C and they are second with 9 points and already qualified while Tractor Sazi are out.

    In Group D Al-Hilal are third place with 6 points but can qualify at the expense of Sepahan if they defeat them at home next weak.

    So it is probable that 3 out of 4 Saudi Arabian teams will qualify for the knockout rounds while only 1 Iranian team will probably qualify.

    The only team that has failed completely is Al-Fateh which are last in Group B with 2 points and in that group Iranian Foolad top with 11 points.

    Al-Fateh is placed as number 10 in the Saudi Arabian league though out of a total of 14 teams. So not strange that they suck in the AFC as well. Despite them winning the league last season. That's probably due to the Saudi Arabian league being the most competitive in Asia.

    Obviously European football. Mostly the Spanish League where FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two most popular football clubs in the Arab world. After that Premier League and Serie A.

    In terms of national football teams outside the region then my generation mostly preferred Brazil and to a lesser extent France and Argentina. Today Spain are very popular.

    In 3 weeks the team managed to receive that 1 year long transfer ban from FIFA, get eliminated from the CL, lose the league this weekend by losing against Granada (LOL) and now today the pathetic game against the archival. All in 3 weeks time.:lol:

    I only watched the second half fully. Expected a defeat beforehand but you can't always win. The past 10 years have been one success after the other while RM mostly failed or disappointed.

    In any case hopefully those recent pathetic display's will mean that the pathetic leadership/president will get thrown out as well as Tata the clueless moron.

    At least Ittihad won.:D

    Thanks,

    The team is floating downward. I went through Barcelona Arabic forum, people are very upset at both the administrative and the coaching staff. :warning2:


    Yes Ittihad is kicking, congrats. :nhl_checking:

    :tsk:

    They been bad all season. Tata was not the right man to begin with. Who knew him before he became manager? I did not. They were too arrogant and thought that the team would win and win without buying new top players and changing the dynamics. Laporta was the right president. Big changes need to happen.

    I think that Atlético Madrid will take the league (deserved) and then Bayern Munich will win the CL or Chelsea. Real Madrid must not win.:flame:

    Oh, well there is always next season.​

    Yes many are fans of those 3 but I would change Chelsea with Manchester United.

    Well based on my observations in KSA and outside of it then there are more Manchester United fans. But Chelsea are probably second in England.

    Al-Ittihad FC are from Jeddah and have black and yellow stripes while Al-Hilal FC are from Riyadh and they play in blue and white stripes.

    Both are rivals.
